As an outdoor field photographer, you like shooting with a telephoto lens to capture the jagged mountain peaks, the colorful clouds and skies, and the landscape blooming with prairie grass and wildflowers. As a noted professional photographer, Outdoor Photography Guide’s shooter David Johnston often gets called on to evaluate numerous cameras and lenses. In this sponsored video, the Tamron 50-400mm F4.5.6 Di III VXD Lens, David analyzes this versatile zoom lens and shows you the features, advantages, and benefits. It is important to note that this lens is designed for Sony e-mount mirrorless cameras.

With the Tamron 50-400mm F4.5.6 lens, photographers get a vast range of shooting choices, and it is fairly lightweight. The zoom and focus ring are smooth and easy to adjust. The lens includes custom buttons for flexible settings. There is another button to lock in focusing. For example, you set your lens at 135mm, and flip a switch to lock in that focus point. Another nice feature is image stabilization. The Tamron 50-400mm F4.5.6 lens features a lot of pieces of glass, which improves quality. David suggests using this lens on a safari. You can have it locked onto your camera the entire trip.

David is a fan of this big zoom lens because his favorite subject is the landscape. The 400mm feature allows you to capture distant parts of the landscape while the 50mm helps you focus on the smaller details. He says it gives him “wiggle room” in capturing scenic shots. You can also use the Tamron 50-400mm F4.5.6 lens for adventure photography to create scale and also for candid pictures of people and animals.

David comments that if you combine the Tamron 20-40mm F2.8 zoom lens with the Tamron 50-400mm F4.5.6 lens, these two lenses would be all you need to carry in your bag. He calls this a “dream package” for your Sony e-mount mirrorless camera.
